  1. Hey, just a short question here..

    If I am playing a game and I set the screen resolution higher and it increases refresh rate, will that improve the quality of the graphics? Or what does it really do? I don't really understand all of that.

    Thanx :)

    higher refresh rate would help...some. A higher resolution taxes your video card more too. I wouldnt try putting the resolution too high with your video card. Depends on what your max resolution is though.

    I can usually pin my graphics to the max since my monitor only displays a resolution of 1280 by 1024. It does pretty good. I LOVE my graphics card to. Plays pretty much any games and programs at and just plows through them. A good website I recently ran into is

    Its pretty neat..kinda like a game bench-marker.
